It is pretty cold at the beach, the DW and I usually spend New Years day at the beach, kind of a new fresh beginning to the new year, we always have to wear jackets hats and gloves. She is a coonass and I have lived here for over 20yrs so it could be that we are aclimated to the climate and the cold affects us more.....

Most of the touristy stuff on the beach will not be open, the historical stuff will be, but most will close at or shortly after dark......

Yep... it can be cold OR warm... depends on the year! We walk on the beach at that time of year and I've usually got hat, gloves and scarf on (but I hate the cold). We'll see northerners in shorts... so I guess it's all relative. We've also been in our swim suits sunbathing on the 2nd of January in a lovely 85 degrees!! NICE! Check the weather right before you come.
